Pro-choicers harass 40 Days for Life participants

Shortly after the local news in Santa Cruz covered the city’s 40 Days for Life campaign, pro-choicers came out in force to harass the demonstrators:

“For the next week, several [pro-choice] protesters showed up in the afternoons wearing ghoul costumes and shouting at prayer volunteers. Throughout the vigil, volunteers were spat upon and had water bottles thrown at them and signs ripped out of their hands.”

No one boasts of being an abortionist

From an article in The Independent about a shortage of abortion providers in England:

“Distaste at performing terminations combined with ethical and religious convictions has led to a big increase in “conscientious objectors” who request exemption from the task, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (RCOG) says. A key factor is what specialists call “the dinner party test.” Gynecologists who specialize in fertility treatment creating babies for childless couples are almost universally revered – but no one boasts of being an abortionist. As a result, after decades of campaigning, antiabortion organizations may be on the point of achieving their objective by default. Repeated efforts to tighten the law have failed and public opinion remains firmly in support, but the growing number of doctors refusing to do the work means there may soon not be enough prepared to carry out terminations to meet demand.”

Samara Azam—Yu, director of Access Women’s Health Justice in Oakland, California, an organization that raises funds for women who can’t afford to have abortions:

“There’s a Native American nurse at an abortion clinic in San Francisco who put it this way. She said, “If you have twins and it’s a bad year, you have to put one in the badger hole.”

Michelle Oberman Her Body, Our Laws: On the Front Lines of the Abortion War from El Salvador to Oklahoma (Boston, Massachusetts: Beacon Press, 2018) 108

Abortionist Brags: “we never lost a life” in his clinic

Rabbi Daniel Levy tells the following anecdote:

“A gynecologist told me that he was once called to assist at a center for the termination of pregnancies in the North of England. The woman had just had a termination and was bleeding to death. The gynecologist turned up with his colleagues in the ambulance and as they led the lady away on the stretcher the director of the organization said reassuringly to the doctors:

“You know, over the last 30 years we have performed 120,000 abortions in this clinic and never once lost a life.”

Pro-choicer: put aside money in case you need an abortion

Pro-abortion activist Katha Pollitt says:

“Build a reserve fund in case you need to end a pregnancy. Even if you can only put aside five dollars a week, in two years you’d have enough for a first trimester abortion, even if your partner didn’t share the costs, which of course he should. (In fact, he should pay the whole thing, since you’re the one going through that not fun day.) If you got pregnant before then, you would at least have a head start on raising when you needed.”

Post-abortion woman laments she destroyed her only chance of being a mother

A woman who had an abortion wrote:

“I was only 18 at the time and at that time I had no idea that would be my only opportunity to have a child. I did have a few minor gynecological problems and I am not sure if they are directly related to my abortion. A few months ago, at 43, I had a hysterectomy and that is what made me realize that I would never have a child of my own and ruined and destroyed any chance of ever becoming a mother. If only I had known. . . .”
